About the Event

Honouring Canada's LGBTQ emerging writers.

Every year in June, the Writers’ Trust of Canada hosts a ceremony in celebration of the finalists for the Dayne Ogilvie Prize for LGBTQ Emerging Writers. Selected by a jury, three writers with exceptional bodies of work converge at this event for the announcement of the $4,000 prizewinner. This event is free and open to the public.
